I don’t think there’s anything else that can warm you up from the inside-out like this black bean soup. It’s an incredibly nourishing dish that’s economical, keeps in the fridge for several days, and also freezes well.
The easiest way to puree this soup is with an immersion blender. Before I bought one of these, I use to ladle the soup in batches into the blender which left me with many more dishes to clean and drippings all over the counter. If you don’t already have this small appliance, I highly recommend it! It can also be used to blend salad dressings and smoothies.
